An incredible opportunity to better yourself and better understand the world around you, frequent mocked and derided by people too stupid to appreciate it or as a defense against their own shortcomings or lack of ambition.
Jared said, "Schools are stupid. The only reason the government wants us to learn and become critical thinkers is so they can control us." Cornelius replied, "If you had been more invested in your education growing up, you wouldn't be saying such stupid things. Now get back to work. I'm not paying you minimum wage to complain about how everything is someone else's fault."

Something that is SERIOUSLY taken for granted here in America. Seriously, all you gotta do is go in with an open mind/positive attitude, do your work (try hard, and if you don't understand it, simply ask for help), pass the tests, and get your diploma. It's free, and it's worth it.
Kids in third-world countries would KILL to get an education, and here we are, acting like spoiled brats by thinking we gotta "conform to the system".

Something that one should receive to realize that America is a decent country. Also something that one should receive to live a good life. Oh sure, it's hellish, but it will serve you well in the long run. ^_~ this I know for a fact.

Dude. Fuck you all. Education may not be the "source of infinite happiness", or the most important thing in the god damn world, but you need it to survive in life, unless you want to take cock in your ass when you grow up. Education is important for when you get older, if you want to make money.

btw, and you complain and say "Oh! 18 years of shit!"

Ok, now you try starting school when you're 15, and trying to get a high-paying normal job (doctor, lawyer, etc) by the time you're 30. You have to start it early so you can get all that crap in your head before it's too late.
Someone: Oh, I'll become a NFL player! Just you see! Fuck education!

- Something we all need.
- Something we all hate.
- Something you won't succeed in life without (unless a "career" in retail, which caps off at store manager, is fine for you)
- Something we should not try to push on the others (like we do in US by giving double time to ADD/ADHD kids - lol ADD), because we do need people to bag our groceries and clean our bathrooms.
- Hey maaan, I hate school - I'ma go smoke weed and be retarded instead.
- Sure, w/e, just don't talk to me.

Employer for a good job: So what kind of education did you receive in your life, Mr.Whiny-ass loser?
Whiny-ass loser: Ugh... edjookaishon?
Employer: Next!
